Which shows are you going to this fashion week?
Katie Galleger, Zspoke, and (maybe) Phillip Lim.
Are you more excited to go to the shows or the parties?
The parties. It's a rare occasion when I break hibernation from work, but [Fashion Week parties] are the best. Everything is on the house and there's good music. The best one this year will probably be Westway…
How would you describe your take on fashion photography?
Don't take everything so seriously. Enjoy life. Everything in fashion magazines is too serious. (Also, there's great catering on all my sets.)
What would the world look like if you had aesthetic control over everything?
Everyone would eat well: Full delicious meals without weight issues. Everyone should be allowed to eat great food without any worries.
What do you do when you're not creating art? I eat, work on my house, design furniture and cook for people.
